Thank you all so much for your very sweet comments. We held Gypsy's lil funeral... we buried him... covered his grave with some rocks and flowers picked from the yard.... and lit a candle for him in my old herb garden where lemon balm comes back year after year. I've tried and tried to stop the lemon balm from growing there because I wanted to grow other things there... but it just took over and is determined to stay. So... that is where my Gypsy is now... with the ever returning lemon balm. May his sweet lil soul return to us when and if he chooses...

Steffie cried and cried... which made me cry and cry as well. This was her first experience with death and I couldn't shield her from it because she was right there with me when I found him Saturday morning. So we had to explain death to her... a lesson her had to learn sometime... just a lil sooner than I had hoped. She went to bed crying the last 2 nights saying she would miss Gypsy. I comforted her and told her that he knows that we love him. She will be fine... with time...

Tomorrow starts a new week... and I'm sure we'll have plenty of adventures and distractions... time will heal our pain... and maybe someday another lil black kitten will show up at my door. Of course I will take it in and love it... like I always do....

A Lil Enchanted,
~LaShan~

I'm so so sorry about your loss! :( And so sad for Steffie that she had to be there, poor baby. :( I know he will be watching over you guys!

I wish they could live forever. I love having them around so so much, but it breaks my heart every time one of them leaves us.
